Gillian’s association with Solomons goes right back into the mid-1990s when she and Paul worked at competing firms in Christchurch, but nevertheless happily exchanged ideas and tools to enhance their client work. After many years working at a senior level as a solicitor specialising in the fast-growing area of elder law, Gillian founded her own specialist practice in 2009. Now, after 36 years as a solicitor and with a strong personal client following, she is happy to continue looking after them as a consultant of Solomons, secure in the knowledge that Paul and his team will provide the backup that she needs.
Gillian is a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) and a fully accredited member of Solicitors for the Elderly. She holds the STEP Advanced Diploma on Advising Vulnerable Clients, with distinction.
